Now at a place called Madura.

My son and I left home 15 hours ago, have driven near to 1300kms, and still have about 200 more to get out of our state.

Western Australia is a big place.

Sunset from Cocklebiddy.

Sorry - the middle bit of the country does not have great mobile signal....

Sunrise east of Madura pass.

Hmm... photo is sideways - will see what I can do about it when I can get my pooter online. Phone in the car just west of Poochera is no plave to play with this.

Breakfast.

Bacon, egg, cheese sandwiches.

About 1400km east of Perth. A full day and another hour of driving and still inside our own state.

Nearly got several Roos last night and early this morning.  Also seen several Emus with chicks.

This is at the start of the Great Australian Bight - the concave curve that "bites" into the south coast of Australia.

Will get a photo from the actual bight  on the way back.

Three long days of driving and we are finally in Sydney. 

Day 1 - 4am leave Perth.

Arrive Madura 7.30pm. Cheap motel.

Day 2 leave Madura at 5.30am 

Stopped at a little place called Morgan in South Australia nearly at midnight. Tried to sleep in the car as no vacancies anywhere (three towns) 

Day 3 leave Morgan at 3.30am - hardly slept. 

Breakfast in Mildura, Victoria, around 7am. Around 9am we passed into New South Wales.

Making good time until the Hume Highway was closed due to bushfire 2 hours drive from Sydney. 2.5 hour diversion through some of the twistiest roads you can imagine, in the dark.

Arrive at Sydney destination 9.30pm.

The trip is around 4000km - and we filled up the car at Coolgardie, Madura, Ceduna, and a little town near Renmark, and used a total of about 140 litres of fuel.

The car was telling us it used 5.3l/100km which is better than 44 mpg.

A decent night's sleep, and now about to head to church with my Sister.

 

Will put up more photos when I have time and have the energy.

Sunrise somewhere in New South Wales. 

I don't know what's happening here - but remember that Austrslia IS called the land down under......:laugh:

I am not up to sorting and posting the photos etc yet - maybe tomorrow when we are settled in Canberra if the motel has wifi.......

Perhaps people who live down under just see things upside down.  :15_1_63:

I will put more photos up when I eventually get home, but we thought we would check our directions on the GPS - easy to take a wrong turn when there are so many options.......:6_smile:

There is only one true road across the bottom of Australia.

How many of you would ever have seen this kind of "distance to next turn"? :4_6_4:

I think I put this one up in the other thread but......

And now this one as well.

These are Wedge Tailed Eagles, and this pair have been injured and are being kept in an aviary at Cocklebiddy until they recover and can be released.

They eat the roadkill, but are not always fast enough to get away as a car or truck comes. 

Not small birds either - can have wingspans of 8 - 9 feet.
